#MyAdventCalendar2021 #Day18: This is the very lovely Mrs. Hsu and her helper, Linda, who I’ve just been to visit today at Suang-Lien Elderly Center to wish them a Happy Christmas! 🎄⛄🕯️ Actually Mrs. Hsu is even more looking forward to December 28, her birthday ~ she says she’s going to be 95, so Happy Birthday too! 🎂🎁🎈 Mrs. Hsu is wonderfully well-cared for by Linda, whose family home is in Boracay in The Philippines. Linda’s family are really grateful to her for the money she can send home every month from her work in Taiwan, and she always appears with a smile and with words of encouragement for Mrs. Hsu.
Mrs. Hsu’s late husband was a Presbyterian pastor, and together they spent 15 years serving in a church in Mauritius, where their 3 children grew up ~ now all of them live overseas with their own families. There are many elderly people in Taiwan whose children all live overseas, and it’s not easy for them in this pandemic, when international travel is so difficult. On this grey wintry day, with the bitterly cold winds blowing up the big waves on the sea just outside the care home, it’s so good that Mrs. Hsu and Linda can live in a warm and friendly place like Suang-Lien. Please do pray for them!
